Notes and questions:
C1 Matthew 28:19-20 WEB Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you. Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
C2 Acts 1:21-26 WEB “Of the men therefore who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22 beginning from the baptism of John, to the day that he was received up from us, of these one must become a witness with us of his resurrection.” 23 They put forward two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also called Justus, and Matthias. 24 They prayed, and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all men, show which one of these two you have chosen 25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas fell away, that he might go to his own place.” 26 They drew lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias, and he was counted with the eleven apostles.
C3 What was one of the purposes for the Apostles’ preaching and teaching?
C4 The Gospels were written to remember and spread the life, teachings, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
B2 The genealogy traces Messiah through King David and Abraham. Why special mention of these two men? Compare Genesis 22:18, Psalm 110:1, and Romans 1:3.
B3 Messiah is the deliverer, savior,
B4 How do we know that Jesus is the Messiah? Consider:
B5 Jesus is the Messiah, but He needs to be each person’s Messiah. See here.
B6 Is the virgin birth true? See this for a answer.
B7 In Matthew 1:19 Joseph and Mary are betrothed, but in Matthew 1:20 Joseph is called her husband. How do we understand this? Joseph and Mary were married—officially, but they had not come together physically. See here and here.
B8 Does God have a son? Consider Hebrews 1:5, Psalm 2:7, and Psalm 2:12
B9 Isaiah 7:14, Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. This is a true virgin, for the strict medical is used here “To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.” Luke 1:27 and Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
